I didn't take that many pictures of this process. Basically cut out the shape in cardboard, curve it by making it wet and laying it on a curves surface. For the boot covers I taped the wet cardboard to a soda bottle. When Dried add strips of cardboard around the edges and a couple of furniture nails as detail.
Cover your molds in filler. It is easier to make sword slashes in wet filler than to sand them out, so be creative in this stage and slash about. When dried, sanded and painted silver it is time for weathering. (more about weathering)
